This festival is very important for us because this is also our MEMBERSHIP DRIVE WEEKEND! We can use EVERYONE who attends to assist in asking eligible Catholics to join us in our good works… that they can see with their own eyes! I’ll make it interesting… FOR EVERY PROPOSER WHO BRINGS IN A NEW MEMBER (and they join us), I WILL GIVE THEM A $5 GIFT CARD FOR LITTLE CAESARS (or a $5 donation in your name to St. Pius)! (No, I don’t get a discount on the pizzas… I wish!) Ask anyone and everyone to join us in the Knights of Columbus!

Next Wednesday, September 6th at 7PM, we will be holding our monthly meeting in the St Pius Social Hall. Please attend if you can. We have a lot to discuss, so we would really like you to know what’s going on.

Hope to see you at the festival this weekend and/or at our meeting next Wednesday!

Fraternally yours in Christ,
